### draftlotto is here

Hi all, I'm new to this forum, and wanted to introduce myself - I'm interested in math of all sorts.  In particular, I've lately been interested in the calculation of probabilities related to draft lotteries (e.g. NBA, NHL draft lotteries) using a variety of methods, including Monte Carlo simulation and exact methods.  Related to that, I've been developing an application that can calculate draft lottery probabilities for a lot of different scenarios.  If you're interested, I've started a website - just add a .com to my username .

Anyway, I look forward to being part of this forum,

Hi draftlotto;

Welcome to the forum. A nice free tool.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

I was here since November 30.

Or was it the anniversary when I changed my name?
